Method development and validation for the detection of acrylamide in food matrix

Title of the proposed R&D project: Method development and validation for the detection of acrylamide in food matrix.

Name and designation of Project Leader & Research Associates: Project Leader: Dr. Mala Khan, CSO and Director, DRiCM Project Associate: Mamudul Hasan Razu (SO), Rana Karmakar (SO).

Aims and Objectives: To develop valid and traceable analytical methodology for the analysis of acrylamide in food matrix.

Socio economic significance of the proposed Project:
1. Acrylamide is carcinogenic agents produced in high temperature without any external supplement causing toxic effect in human body such as neurotoxin production, hormonal imbalance etc.
2. Develop a reliable and traceable methodology for quantification of acrylamide in food can be used as national policy for food quality measurements through establishment of a data base.
3. The study will help to create public awareness on harmful effect of acrylamide in food.

Project current status: On going.
